I went to see Placebo here tonight with 2 friends, and even though the band were pretty good the venue was not. You can't take drinks into the auditorium, so if you want to quench your thirst you have to miss some of the show you've paid to see while you take a drink. Further to that, they impose a... More

Attended an 'Australian Pink Floyd' concert in the Waterfront recently. As usual the band were top class and I couldn't find fault with the venue either. The acoustics were stunning and, even though there was a full house, it still felt intimate. The tiered seating ensured a great view of the stage with no annoying backs of heads in the... More

This was an amazing concert performed to perfection. The Waterfront itself has improved, though some little things such as not being able to use debit cards at the bar, are irritating. However this is a beautiful building & a wonderful concert venue with great acoustics.

I've been to see many of the great names in entertainment over the last 40 years, and in many different locations. I hadn't been to the Waterfront for several years until a Drifters concert on Friday, and my word what a great night, The venue itself is handy, with masses of parking in the vicinity which is opposite the Belfast...

The venue itself is really well laid out. Been a number of times to different events. The last event was the Red Hot Chilli Pipers, who were immense. Generally, the staff are good at the waterfront, but last night there was one guy in the main auditorium who was a bit over officious. He stopped some people from recording, but... More

Fabulous performance of Messiah. Belfast Philharmonic in fine form with Ulster Orchestra(Chamber). The soprano and tenor soloists were sublime. Interval coffee was awful. It would be better not to offer this. Surely a venue such as this could offer proper coffee? Otherwise experience was great.

We went to see the snowman at the waterfront with the ulster orchestra. The concert itself was really enjoyable. The service in the hall itself was awful and made the whole experience a bad one. You can't use your card at any of the bars and there are no cash machines in the venue or any within a ten minute... More
